An Enduring Partnership: Vietnam-U.S. Relations in 2017 and Beyond

screenshot-2017-01-09-15-48-37The AmCham Board of Governors cordially invites you to join in a special dinner meeting with U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius

Saturday, January 14, 2017

6:00pm – 9:00pm

Yu Chu Restaurant, InterContinental Asiana Saigon

Ambassador Osius will share with us highlights of the past year and the outlook for Vietnam – U.S. relations in 2017. Following the momentous events of 2016, including the Presidential Visit in May and the U.S. General Election in November, and looking forward to APEC 2017 in Vietnam, as well as the 50th anniversary of ASEAN, what can we expect about Vietnam – U.S. relations, especially trade and investment relations?

vietnam-u-s-tradeAmCham members, in cooperation with our friends and partners in Vietnam, have helped trade in goods between Vietnam and the United States reach record levels again in 2016, more than $50 billion, and expected to exceed $80 billion if present trends continue. Remarkably, Vietnam is now the top ASEAN exporter of goods to the United States only ten years after WTO accession, accounting for 25% of U.S. imports from ASEAN.

At the same time, U.S. FDI interest in Vietnam is increasingly expanding out of consumer products produced in “partner factories” to modern high-technology manufacturing in U.S. company factories for sale in Vietnam and export to global markets, as well as to intermediate producer goods.
